Smart distribution

IFly Selections is a totally new publishing platform that allows KLM to target existing and new customers with awesome content. The website is the central hub with loads of travel stories, mesmerizing video reports and amazing photo series. But we also bundle parts of this vast content into selections and offer these to individual travelers via email, Facebook, ads and so one. This smart distribution strategy gives the content a different role, each time. Sjors: “With iFly Selections we have found a way to make our rich content even more relevant. Tailor-made inspiration that adds extra value to KLM; brand-wise as well as conversion-wise.”.
